I read Out of the Depths: An Unforgettable WWII Story of Survival, Courage, and the Sinking of the USS Indianapolis (Bethany House ) by Edgar Harrell, USMC, with David Harrell with high hopes. I may have come into the story biased by other somewhat similar stories I highly enjoyed. This one was just different, not bad, just different. The story itself seemed somewhat distant; lost in almost overwhelming details. I understand that details are necessary to tell story; it's just that in this instance they took over and were sometimes disconnecting from the story. I think the published copy of the book will be better. I had an advanced e-reader copy, which did not include pictures. I think the pictures may override those details in connecting the reader to the story. Not a bad read, I just don't think it was told to it's full potential.
